This morning, singer Sonu Nigam was apparently woken up by the sound of Azaan from a local mosque. And, going by his tweets, he hated it so much that he called it 'gundagardi'.

Nigam's main concern was this: "I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning."

"When will this forced religiousness end in India," the singer tweeted.

Nigam didn't stop there. He went on to justify his tweets too. Well, let's say he tried to.

He then went on to say that he doesn't 'believe' that temples and gurudwaras should wake up people with loud noises either.

And finally he came to a conclusion about mosques do it.

Nigam's tweets were criticised:

But it was also supported by many.

Apurva Asrani, editor and screenwriter, probably best summarised our exact feeling after Nigam's tweet.
